Assalamu’alaykum everyone who happened to read this blog.
Today is the new year of hijriyah.
there’s somethings happened recently and I want to share it with this blog.
First,it was eid-al-adha last month. 2 weeks before,I and some classmates got the project to sell the cows for charity,interesting wasn’t it? 😀
Unlike last year,
I spent this year eid-al-adha away from family,but totally just like last year, I was in my period which mean I couldn’t perform shalah in that day 😦
The thought of spending the happy day alone really got me, and I felt a lil bit lonely.
Lucky me, hanichu text me 1 day before the eid,offering me to celebrate it with her and her family, I was really thankful,but that time I still have sick load of assignments which need to be done,I was afraid I couldn’t make it,so I didn’t accept hanichu’s offer directly.
Then I woke up in the morning of eid, got personal message from hanichu’s mother (I also call her ‘ibu’),inviting me to her house, awww,this family is really kind. So,without hesitating I decide to commuting to their house.
I remembered last year, I was spending all day long texting mbapika,talking a lot of things about religious matter,her future husband (who was still unknown that time), her plan to have her own family…and now,she’s already married and even……… *okay,not continuing* 😀
Fast forward to the moment I was commuting alone. There’s many people who commuted to Bogor also, I even had to give my seat for an old woman,because there’s no more seat available. Fast forward again,and I arrived at Stasiun Depok Lama, waiting for hanichu,she said she actually already wanted to pick me up earlier,but ibu insisted to go along,so she got delayed. I said it’s okay,so I waited for awhile.
I sat on the bench and look around, there’s so many family,and they look really happy together. It wasn’t my first time to spent eid-al-adha alone, but every year,my late mom called me and told me how she wished I was there,because she cooked my favorite meal, I always replied that someday we’ll celebrate it together.
The fact is that day I was alone,and I really lucky to have hanichu and her family taking me. I was so lucky,yes?. I praised Allah and cried in silence.
Then hanichu came,she and her family is really kind,spending that day by playing with her cousins,watching ultraman,talk to her mom,watching mr.bean,got to taste ibu and hani’s amazing cooking,I’m really really grateful to know them…I always be thankful for that day. I am really really blessed to know you,hanichu 🙂 to know bumen and mbapika also.
The next day, I got back to reality,waking up to my daily activities,doing some dull assignments,and eventually passed the bloody mid-term exam. Alhamdulillah.
and yeah! we also got happy news from Bumen,for now,let it remains secret 😉
This year is really full of blessing yet I am still a fool for not obeying Allah SWT. Gotta work harder and harder to better.
Let’s start over in the new year. 🙂
